SATURDAY afternoon we planned to take a trip to BROOKLYN to purchase some classic TRINIDADIAN food and by “purchase” i mean stocking up on food like it’s Y2K. you just can’t find these amazing meals in MANHATTAN 🙁
just for the record, i usually don’t leave the hood because i am lazy. i will travel if there is a promise of FOOD because i’m such a fat kid at heart. this post is dedicated to my FELLOW FATTIES, BROOKLYN PEEPS and WEST INDIAN FAM!
*we stocked up on COCONUT BAKE (coconut bread), SALTFISH (is tastier than it sounds), CURRY GOAT ROTI’s (again, more appetizing than it sounds), DOUBLES (god’s gift), POULOURIE, and ALOO PIE. i’m going to get into a post later about TRINIDAD and all it’s goodness.
*i was dancing the whole time i was eating and getting my plate ready. the round balls are POULOURIE – like fried dough balls in a tamarind sauce. at the bottom is ALOO PIE – it’s a fried bread (again) with peppered potatoes inside.
***LATER, i passed out and took an ill 5 hour nap!
